Another picture of the enormous
sexual dimorphism between Argyope argentata spider species. You can compare with my 200th picture:
The male measures only 1 cm, legs included.
Magnifying glass as macro lens

Hola Hernan,
lo que es la cosa de los sexos,
original y oportuna macro,
saludos amigo,

Evidentemente el de las arañas no es un mundo machista :)
Es una captura muy interesante como documento comparativo, el angulo está perfectamente elejido.
Si no hubiera leido la nota pensaria que era una cria.
Gracias y un saludo!

Hi Hernan,
A surprising photo when opened from the thumbnail. A good idea for a photo, I was expecting to see a big spider and I see the little male in focus instead. Good DOF and sharpness,
Well done,

Beau jeu de double arraignée avec la toile, belle composition.

Inceible! Comecei a abrir a imagen e creia que estava sin foco, pero então pude ver la pequeña aranha em primeiro plano. Excelente captura!

Realmente es explícita la comparación entre ambos. Muy nítido el primer plano. Tal vez el fondo de ramas a una hora en que no le dé tanta luz todavía quedara mejor, pero desde luego has logrado sacar muy bien los dos sujetos principales.

Ciao Hernan, impressionante, povero maschietto con tanta femnmmina, bella e nitida, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hola Hernan,
Es sorprendente la diferencia de tamaño para ser la misma especie, una buena captura de un buen momento en el que se aprecia muy bien los detalles, Gracias por compartirla, Saludos

Hi Hernan

I really like how you presented this shot with the out-of-focused threatening and looming image of the female spider dwarfing the small yet finely detailed male spider. At this stage the male spider has but a very short time to live so it is right that the focus was on it for what was probably its last moment of glory.

Again your magnifying glass cum macro lens did brilliantly to capture all the wonderful details of such a small little spider. Only 1cm in length, legs included. That surely deserves a WOW. The composition is great with the female almost completely marks an X throughout the frame. Once again the OOF and well isolated BG adds to enhance the subjects very well. The exposure was spot-on and it took care of the good lighting that even brought the web nicely into view.

Well done and TFS.

Buen documento Hernán. Lo de la lupa tiene narices jeje. Un saludo.

Ah huh, the focus on baby make things look differently. Not so colorful but interesting composition.
